With over 60 million tourists visiting New York City every year, Staten Island gets plenty of visitors, and many of them are walking tourists. While one of the best ways to see Staten Island is by exploring all the nooks and crannies and unique neighborhoods on foot, being a pedestrian can be hazardous.

Memorial Day weekend 2017 is upon us, and for those of you who are staying local this holiday weekend, we’ve got a few Staten Island events that you’ve got to check out!

This weekend is your last chance to check out an exhibition and sale of the works of Synthia St. James, Charles Bibbs, & More. at Staten Island’s Creative Incubator HUB 17. The event is a collaboration between Nafissah Art Collectibles and media producer Frances Wilson Noellez. The exhibition has been running since April 29th, and will continue until Sunday May 7th.

If you live on Staten Island, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a new bridge being constructed next to the Goethals Bridge which connects Staten Island to New Jersey. That would be the “new Goethals Bridge,” that should be complete in 2018.

An icon of New York City, the Staten Island Ferry was one of the first subjects to be recorded in High Definition. Back in 1993, while introducing the technology, JVC filmed various scenes in New York City for a promotional video.

You probably haven’t ever seen Staten Island’s iconic St. George Ferry Terminal from this perspective

Where can you find the highest density of graduate students in New York City? Well, not on Staten Island…

We had a chance to chat with Corinna Sager, producer of Ferry Tales and Kamillah Hanks who was featured in the film and consequentially was the film’s publicist. Hanks is currently running for the north shore council seat against incumbent Debi Rose.

It’s Valentine’s Day on Staten Island and lots of local businesses are spreading the love (in the way of discounts to our local shoppers)

Now running for more than half a decade, the guys (…aka The Tenderloins: Sal, Q, Joe, and Murr) are bound to be recognized every now and then.
